  The Davidic Covenant
If David's throne ever ceased to exist,
then God's promise has failed!

We have space to quote but briefly from the Scriptures setting forth this amazing Davidic Covenant.
Like the covenant with Abraham,
God made the Davidic Covenant unconditional and unbreakable.
David wanted to build a great Temple, as God's house in Jerusalem.
The Almighty replied, when thy days be fulfilled,
and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers,
I will setup thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels,
and I will establish his kingdom" (II Samuel 7:12).
This, of course, was his son Solomon, who succeeded David to the throne.
'He," God continued, "shall build an house for my name,
"and it was Solomon who did build the Temple
and I wilt establish the throne of his kingdom for ever (verse 13).

Notice it! The throne of David, occupied by Solomon,
was to be established forever!
If that throne ever ceased to exist,
then God's promise has failed!
But some say the promise was conditioned upon the obedience of Solomon
and the future line of kings or their people.

Notice the Scriptural answer to this:
"I will be his father, and he shall be my son.
If he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men,
and with the stripes of the children of men but (yes, notice this but)
my mercy shall not depart from him as I took it from Saul,
whom I put away before thee" (verses 14-15). Saul's dynasty ceased. God
promises He will never take away this throne from David's line in this manner.
David's dynasty shall never cease!

Continuing, next verse,
"And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee:
thy throne shall be established forever.

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
